that you can't face reality. What is wrong is wrong
no matter who says it."

"You assist an evil system most effectively by obeying its orders and decrees. An evil system never deserves such allegiance. Allegiance to it means partaking of the evil. A good person will resist an evil system with his or her whole soul.
Mahatma Gandhi

Donald Trump

"The difference between patriotism and nationalism is that the patriot is proud of his country for what it does, and the nationalist is proud of his country no matter what it does; the first attitude creates a feeling of responsibility, but the second a feeling of blind arrogance that leads to war.
Sydney J. Harris

"There is a chance that we could end up having a 
major, major conflict with N. Korea."
Donald Trump

"Trump is a traitor."
Jeff Lewis

     Offensive, blundering, uneducated, unfit, serial liar, bully, narcissist, asinine, and quite probably a Russian stooge. Yet there are those who give him allegiance. Stupefying! 

please answer
     Are we to believe this man is an evil genius who, with his cabal and laughable sycophants will make this nation a better place? Who, but Putin, thinks it's a good idea to bash or break NATO? How's Korea working out? What did we get for walking out on the Iran deal? They got the money and now no one is there to stop them from building nukes? How's that wall look? Did you get your heartland jobs back? Are those coal mines open again? Cutting lunch programs your idea of hearing those desperate who voted so they would be heard and get help? That tax break help you as much as it did the 1%? You really want to invade Venezuela? What's the positive of being the only nation in the world to drop out of the Paris Climate accords? Think it's a good idea to kick your allies and make nice with despots? Really, cancel war games because they are too expensive, but spend more than that on security for golf weekends at Mar a Lago? Is that big military parade to compensate for libido? Did Trump care replace Obama Care? Is America Great Again?

      How, why does anyone give him allegiance? 

    See you down the trail.       


  1. Soybean prices down 20% Mexico is no longer importing US Dairy products, exports to Mexico are 28% dairy production. BMW is cutting back operations in South Carolina, huge numbers of some of the highest paying jobs in the state will disappear. Republicans in congress furrow their brows...

  2. Makes you wonder how those folks know which foot the left shoe goes on.

  3. It's an interesting question, Tom. The vast majority of his 'base' says they will support him no matter what he does:...the evangelicals hold their noses and pull the ballad lever. The white power/nazi/nationalist group like what he is doing. The more insulting of European/Asian/Middle East countries the better, unless they are ruled by dictators, of whom the big cheetio is envious.
    He had 59 million votes. He may have more in the upcoming '20. You are not living in the country you think....Central Costal Cal is not representative of the United States. Nor is Puget Sound, Portland, etc. "Coastal Elites", we are,
    but oddly it's the majority of the population.
    We've never been in a position like this before....what do we do? We are irreconcilable with people of different beliefs in what our country should be. It's suggested we does one compromise with someone who's beliefs, sincere held beliefs, are so repugnant to you as to be nausea-inducing?
    I still think we're on the way to divorce court. I doubt, hopefully, I won't be here to see it. But my kids and g'kids have passports, and 'go bags' packed.
    trump, his cohorts, and his appointments to the system has finally make Martha Mitchell's comment come true: (Remember her, John's wife?) "We're going to take this country so far to the right you won't recognize it."

  4. Tom, your assessment is spot on. There is a huge difference between a president serving his country and just inflicting himself on the public.

  5. I really like your post good blog on site,Thanks for your sharing.
